openldap 2.2.23 packaged with Debian Sarge
I've seen Quanah comment that he'd like Debian to stop using the version
of BDB they do. I've also spoken with people on #openldap who cautioned
against stable's (sarge) version of OpenLDAP.
I built from source (2.3.4) a while ago and everything worked great for
quite a while. Until I split that RAID drive, changed IPs and built a
second box with that hard drive; identical hardware and software -down
to the bit :)- and one of the two identical boxes would kill its slapd
process with no log, no warning, and nothing in an strace. Imagine my
So I'm going to start down the road of building from source again, but
my experience with that left me wanting. If it weren't for Quanah's
help on #openldap, it likely wouldn't have happened. As Debian is the
lazy sysadmin's friend, I was hoping someone could point out the
specific pitfalls of running their packaged version. Are there
reliability issues? Database integrity issues? Performance issues?
Our installation is somewhat small, so if sarge's version fails under
500k record loads, that's not a concern.
I'd just really like to have the expert's opinion of the caveats with
the Debian version. That's currently 2.2.23.
Thanks a lot!
